If passed into law, HB 112 and HB 113 will cause irrevocable harm to trans youth. We’re disappointed to see that the House Judiciary Committee is more interested in passing hateful laws than supporting trans youth in Montana. As these bills move to the floor of the House, we hope lawmakers listen to Montana business leaders, medical professionals and associations, religious leaders, parents, and trans youth and oppose these harmful bills. If these discriminatory bills pass -- we will sue, and we will win. Trying to defend laws in court that stigmatize and target trans youth doesn’t seem like a good use of taxpayer dollars to us.
